Monaco/ ITER Fellowships open for application

David Campbell, Head of the Directorate for Plasma Operation

The Partnership Agreement signed in 2008 between the ITER Organization and the Principality of Monaco provides for up to five Postdoctoral Fellows to be appointed every two years. The competitions for the fellowships have attracted highly talented young scientists and engineers from around the world and from research areas beyond what is commonly considered the "fusion program."

The ten Fellows appointed to date have had the opportunity to work closely with staff members of the ITER Organization, many of whom number among the world's leading researchers in fusion science and technology in areas ranging from optimization of burning plasma scenarios, plasma-wall interactions, advanced plasma diagnostics, superconductivity and control systems. Their research programs have also allowed the Fellows to collaborate with scientists and engineers working on the many research and analysis activities being conducted internationally in support of ITER and to participate in major international meetings where they have presented their research results.

The Postdoctoral Fellows have not disappointed: their high promise has been realized in the work which they have pursued at ITER and they have not only undertaken programs of original research, but contributed to the progress of the ITER Project. It's our hope that the Monaco Fellowships will help equip the next generation of fusion scientists and engineers with the necessary skills and outlook to contribute to the worldwide activities driving forward the successful development of fusion energy and to play a role in the future exploitation of ITER, leading to the production of hundreds of MW of fusion power.
